Online presence and website optimization

Cookies – general information

We use "cookies" on our website on the basis of art. 6 para. 1 (f) of the GDPR. Our interest in optimising our website is thereby deemed legitimate within the sense of the above regulation. Cookies are small files automatically created by your browser and stored on your end device (laptop, tablet, smartphone etc.) when you visit our site. Cookies pose no threat to your end device and contain no viruses, trojan horses or other malware. The cookie contains information produced in connection with the specific end device used. However, this does not mean that we obtain direct knowledge of your identity through this. One purpose of using cookies is to make the use of our offering a more pleasant experience for you. 

However, you can configure your browser so that no cookies are stored on your computer or so that a prompt always appears before a new cookie is created. However, full deactivation of cookies may mean that you cannot make use of all the functions on our website. Cookie storage periods depend on their purpose and are not all the same.

Google Analytics and Google Optimize

For the needs-oriented design and ongoing optimisation of our web pages, on the basis of art. 6 para. 1 (f) of the GDPR (legitimate interest) we use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. ("Google"). In addition the website uses the extension Google Optimize. Anonymous usage profiles are created and cookies are used in connection with this. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website, such as

Browser type/version
Operating system used
Referrer URL (the page visited prior)
Host name of the accessing computer (IP address)
Time of the server request

is sent to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google is certified under the Privacy Shield agreement and thus offers a guarantee to comply with European data privacy law.

We use Google Analytics only with IP anonymisation activated. This means that the user's IP address is truncated by Google within the Member States of the European Union and other contracting parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the complete IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.

The user can apply the corresponding setting in the browser software to block the storage of cookies. However, we should point out that it may not be possible to use all the functions of this website as a result. The user can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie regarding use of the website (including your IP address) by Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available under this link: tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout

An alternative to the browser plugin, or within browsers on mobile devices, it is possible to set an opt-out cookie that prevents future data collection by Google Analytics within this website.

Google AdWords online advertising program

The targeting measures listed below and used by us are carried out on the basis of art. 6 para. 1 (f) of the GDPR (legitimate interest). With the targeting measures used, we would like to ensure that only advertising oriented towards your actual or assumed interests is shown on your end devices. Not burdening you with adverts that are of no interest to you is within both our and your interests.

This website uses the Google AdWords online advertising program and, within its scope, conversion tracking. We also store the gclid parameter in a cookie in order to evaluate the success of our advert placement. These cookies are set when a user clicks on an ad placed by Google. Third-party providers, including Google, place ads on websites on the Internet and use stored cookies to place adverts based on a user's previous visits to this website. These AdWords cookies expire after 30 days, and the gclid parameter cookie expires after 90 days, and are not used for personal identification. Google may transfer this information to third parties where this is required by law or where such third parties process the information on Google's behalf. Under no circumstances will Google associate your IP address with any other data held by Google.

The collection and storage of data may be deactivated at any time with effect for the future. You can disable the use of cookies by Google by accessing the page for deactivating Google advertising. You can also disable conversion tracking cookies by setting your browser to block cookies from the domain "googleadservices.com". However, we should point out that if you do this, you may not be able to use all the functions of this website as a result.

Embedding of services and third-party content

General

On the basis of art. 6 para. 1 (f) of the GDPR (legitimate interest) and with the purpose of making our company more well known, we use social plugins on our website for the following social networks: Facebook, LinkedIn, Xing, Twitter, and Google+. The commercial interest behind this is deemed a legitimate interest within the sense of the GDPR. Responsibility for operation compliant with data privacy must be ensured by the relevant provider.

We also use content and service offerings from third parties within our online offering in order to embed their content and services, e.g. videos or fonts, on the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in analysis, optimisation and economical running of our online offering as defined in art. 6 para. 1 (f) of the GDPR) / on the basis of your consent as defined in art. 6 para. 1 (a) of the GDPR.

LinkedIn

On the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in analysis, optimisation and economical running of our online offering as defined in art. 6 para. 1 (f) of the GDPR), our online offering uses functions of the LinkedIn network. The provider thereof is LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Each time one of our pages that contains LinkedIn functions is accessed, a connection is made to LinkedIn servers. LinkedIn is informed that you have visited our Internet pages with your IP address. If you click the LinkedIn "Recommend" button and you are logged into your LinkedIn account, LinkedIn is able to assign your visit to our Internet site to you and your user account. We wish to point out that, as the provider of the site, we receive no information of the content of the transmitted data or its use by LinkedIn. Data privacy declaration: www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy, Opt-Out: www.linkedin.com/psettings/guest-controls/retargeting-opt-out.

Google Maps

This website uses Google Maps to depict maps and to create route plans. Google Maps is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. By using this website, the user agrees to the recording, processing and usage of data both automatically collected and input by the user (including the IP address) by Google, one of its representatives or a third-party provider.

YouTube

On the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in analysis, optimisation and economical running of our online offering as defined in art. 6 para. 1 (f) of the GDPR), functions of the YouTube service are embedded into the MIAS Maschinenbau, Industrieanlagen & Service GmbH website in order to display and play back videos. These functions are provided by YouTube, LLC 901 Cherry Ave. San Bruno, CA 94066 USA. You can find further information in the YouTube data privacy regulations.

Here, an advanced data privacy mode is used whereby, according to information from the provider, user information is stored only when video playback is initiated. If you start to play back an embedded YouTube video, YouTube uses cookies to gather information on user behaviour. According to information provided by YouTube, this is used, among other things, to create video statistics, to improve user friendliness and to prevent misuse. Regardless of whether the embedded video is played back or not, every time the MIAS Maschinenbau, Industrieanlagen & Service GmbH website is accessed a connection to the Google "DoubleClick" network is established, which can trigger further data processing beyond the influence of MIAS Maschinenbau, Industrieanlagen & Service GmbH.

Users can find further details on how YouTube uses cookies in the YouTube data privacy declaration at: www.youtube.com/t/privacy_at_youtube.

Transfer of data to third parties
